What Pro-Democracy Activists Want From Companies Like Delta To Fight Voter Suppression

  1. Wouldn’t need an ID at all if these “pro-democracy” Marxists didn’t try to undermine the process at every possible opportunity.

    1. No, fortify. According to their own words in time. They fortified the election for the”right” outcome me …

    2. Gee. Too bad the biggest sore loser ever tried to undermine our election. You calling trumpy a Marxist ?

    1. Voter I.D is understandable, it’s the restrictions on ballot box locations, mail in ballot, early voting, and Sunday voting that are voter suppression tactics.

    2. @Rell 1984 The one who illegally created this nation is the Whytedudewhospeakswithforkedtongue, Ungkletom. No ID required for voting in an illegal nation. If the Whaitedog can come here illegally, then everybody, the world over, is welcome. How much is the Whytecheempansy paying you, Thomas??

    3. @The Mrs. There are no ridiculous restrictions on mail-in/absentee voting.
      Tell me what you think are restrictions that shouldn’t be there?

  2. Voter Suppression definition according to democrats: Proving you are who you say you are and voting only once.

    1. Black people don’t have ID’S?????? Can’t walk or take a bus to vote??? 63% of European Union countries don’t offer widespread mail in voting due to fraud issues. [Newsweek https://www.newsweek.com/voting-fraud-real-concern-just-look-around-world-opinion-1522535 ] I PULLED UP THE PORTLAND OREGON MAYOR’S OFFICIAL ONLINE BALLOT SIMPLY WITH NAME AND BIRTHDAY. THE FRAUDULENT PORTLAND MEDIA says IT’S NOT TRUE!!! IT HAD HIS MAILING ADDRESS, DATE HIS BALLOT WAS SENT OUT, OFFICIAL PARTY AFFILIATION AND HIS VOTER ID NUMBER ALONG WITH A PRINTABLE ENVELOPE WITH NO POSTAGE DUE. WHAT PREVENTS ANYONE FROM FORGING A SIGNATURE AND SENDING IT OUT?????? SIMPLY PUT THE PERSON’S RETURN ADDRESS ON IT AND MAIL IT ANYWHERE I DON’T THINK THEIR IS PROTOCAL IN REJECTING BASED ON WHERE IT IS MAILED OUT FROM. NOBODY HARDLY EVER LOOKS AT SIGS EITHER!!!!!!!!! PEOPLE ARE LAZY OR THEY “WANT TO COUNT EVERY VOTE” [FRAUDULENTLY]

    1. @Gary Campbell Mr Campbell we are entitled to our opinions and that’s all you have. Perhaps you should get an opinionectomy!

    2. @lynda medley well for your information i wasn’t bragging i was commenting on some one who said i lived in a red state and probably was still in the 6th grade at age 22. Read previous comments to me. I am not above anyone ever.

    3. @The Mrs.All eligible voting citizens can go to the voting location on legitimate voting days. Why not? Why is it unfair to have a voting DAY instead of voting WEEK? Extended voting periods allow plenty of time for a criminal element to determine how many additional “votes” are needed to flip an election to their candidate- and manufacture them.

    4. @Pam Ramsom I read your comment. Trust me I understood your intent. I also have a masters. Humility keeps you honest with yourself and fair to others. Maybe they don’t teach that in TEXAS.

    1. @DuoFurey That doesn’t make sense. When have European countries been the model for voter ID laws? Also quite some projection right there. Not everyone disagreeing with you is a socialist, you know?

    2. These people are morons here they never complained before until they realised they could use it to cheat elections and get special treatment by calling it racism.

    3. @Minh Triet Vo Northern Ireland, Norway, Netherlands, Italy, Hungary, Iceland, Germany, Finland, France, Greece, have voter ID laws that require a ID to vote.

    4. Kenya has a very different history and political context than the united states, especially the south.

    1. @Randy Torres
      I think the point you’re missing is… That absentee voting and voting by mail are two different things…
      You have to sign up and register for absentee voting, and mail-in ballots are just sent out to anybody who’s been registered in the last 40 years, without knowing if they’ve moved or if they’re known to be still alive.

      That’s hundreds of thousands if not millions of ballots going to the wrong residences or out-of-date addresses.

    2. @Happydaze Harvick Than how come we had a piece of goddam paper in October. We may vote the president indirectly but in the senate and the house in order for them to win they need to win a majority of the popular vote.

      Here’s a link from a historian who explains

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6HFdSCDq48

    3. @Moderate Politics
      The way it’s been explained to me, is it was the only way to get small states to join the Union…
      Smaller states were reluctant to join the union because they would have no, or little say in national politics…

      To that extent, the Electoral College and the structure of the US Senate make sense…

      That’s phenomenally better than forcing smaller states to stay in the union with the business end of a gun.

      Do you remember the rebellions and other problems that the Soviet Union had with Eastern Europe after World War II ?

      It might be called taxation without representation. Just a guess though.

    4. @Happydaze Harvick I can’t say how other states do it but I had to request one. They sent me a application that I had to fill out and send back in. We have no excuse voting but you have to request one to get a ballot. Now I have heard of them mailing out applications but you still have to apply to get one.

    5. @Randy Torres
      Yes, my neighbors and I all had the same applications sent out to them, myself, and including previous occupants, to request a ballot…

      Ohio has very sensible voting laws.

    1. @Transmeesha X no that’s not a wig. That’s hair that’s been relaxed and bleached to filth. You think they’d make a wig that looks that disgusting? lol

    2. @henry ross I have curly hair that dreads easily with or without trying. How is it cultural appropriation if I have dread locks? That is the natural state of my hair if we are being honest, but I’ve been accused of cultural appropriation more than a few times.

    1. Fredo backed out, the unwritten rule, never, never ever go against the family. Something about feeding fish or concrete boots

    2. @Chloe Key calling out puke liar Dems is relevant on every channel. These two are cretins and should go away forever.

    3. @Chloe Key Hold on, maybe someone will make a spelling error, you can be a Grammer Nazi as well as a troll alert type person.

  3. Can these people be taken seriously? Can they even take themselves seriously? What a joke… What a dangerous joke.

    1. Voter I.D is understandable, it’s the restrictions on ballot box locations, mail in ballot, early voting, and Sunday voting that are voter suppression tactics.

    2. @Effscott Fitz-gee every one abuses argument of voter id. Never mention adequate open polls, Sunday voting. Absentee voting, early voting. Automatic voter registration. Which all help voters. And how about national holiday to vote. So no one is stuck working on voting day or with extreme long lines after work if their employer mandated overtime on voting day.

    3. @lynda medley There are a lot of elections in May, unless you’re only talking about national elections.

    4. @Effscott Fitz-gee I’m all for voter IDs. The problem I have is these goofy rules like no eating or drinking while in line while the GOP closes polling spots in communities of color. So these voters are expected to stand in line for eight to ten hours with no eating or drinking allowed? And these same politicians want to tighten voting rules while making it easier to by a gun made for war with absolutely NO background checks!!??

  4. Better idea: Delta fly airliners & stay out of politics.

    Another better idea: Require identification & verify eligibility to vote.

    1. @Noreb you missed the point. Democrats are trying to make it so there is no ID anywhere needed. Also 38 states require ID wtf is that it should of course be all states and people require verification and ID.

    2. @Noreb BULL Shiot. The only laws republicans are trying to keep are the laws that have worked forever. Democrats have opened our borders and they want mail in voting with no ID verification WTF world have you got yourself into. It is not the real one.

    3. @NinTURBO SEGAGRAFX16 Don’t bother these people are demented it doesnt matter if it is actually right or wrong or true or false it only matters if you believe what they tell you to believe. They are like the reject that thinks its fooling someone only to realise they were the ones being fooled the whole time when it doesn’t turn out how they thought it would. F the democrats the enemies of our country.

    4. These laws are thinly veiled attempts to keep ” brown and poor people from voting” send these congresspeople packing folks!

    5. @Ken Havens
      Most brown and poor people are smart enough to understand what’s going on.

      They don’t need progressive overseers to think for them.

    1. Voter ID is fine. I don’t have a problem with proving who you are in order to vote. However there are over 245 laws trying to be passed that have nothing to do with IDs. Like No voting on Sundays, No food or drinks in line, Shortening the time allowed for absentee ballots.

      And what about the fact that in Republican districts have several polling places and voting takes minutes. In Democratic districts there’s only one polling place miles away from their neighborhood and it takes ten hours to vote. And now the GOP wants to make eating and drinking illegal while your waiting in line. That is voter suppression plain and simple. Soon they will say it’s illegal to go to the bathroom while you’re waiting in line for hours to vote.

    2. @Anita Bruton
      Nobody’s going to stop you from pooping your pants when you’re in line to vote.

    1. @stoutsounds Imagine how many more of them there’d be if they weren’t so pro-abortion in the first place.

    1. Why are you so backwards? It was the anti-democracy mob that rioted, trying to overturn our election, cos the biggest sore loser ever, whined that he didn’t win. Too bad so many of you are getting thrown in jail for breaking the law

    2. @Chloe Key you’ve seen worst, don’t blame one man for the way people act. many people incited many things towards each other

    1. @Chloe Key To remove identification and notarization of votes is, in fact, something we the people should be concerned about for our democracy’s sake. So, no, I would rather stay clueless than join your perception of, “every vote counts”, dead or not you couldn’t tell.

    2. @The Mrs. no, republicans as a whole have not willingly wavered their freedom within a, by your standards, strict ruling of power. That’s a false conspiracy, you know that, and your words have meaning to non-active political users; don’t ever purposely manipulate people.

  5. This people are really making the world despise them. Greedy power hungry demonic entities

    1. Not everyone. My Hispanic colleges are still think it’s voter suppression to ask for voter ID and absentee ballot rules is unjust. People are so stupid they don’t know they’re stupid.

    2. @Troyphy he’s one of the dunces that don’t want to live an upright life based upon merit amd truth.

    3. @Ken Havens What’s it like to be so low information and bereft of common sense and logic?? I imagine being so simple minded must be nice sometimes

    1. Soooooo let me get this strait. Corporations are bad and we should keep them out of politics….unless they push democrat agenda? Do you guys even listen to yourselves?

    2. Only to you idiots that are afraid of republicans losing because you know they are the minority patty. But I’m guessing you must be a communist so your opinion is worthless also

    3. @Mark Simpson
      That’s your take on it but she NEVER offered “your take” in her opinion of this. So I’ll ask you as I did Taylor.
      How so??

    4. @Ray Strong Bigotry is bigotry Ray Ray. Colorblind. You not gettin a flyer on this one. I know only Whites can be racist but you ain’t gettin this one too.

    5. @Mark Simpson
      Everything that doesn’t serve the DCP Corporation is raycizt.
      The Cognitive Dissonance runs so deep, scuba gear required.
